This morning, delegates had two workshops, completing the round that started yesterday. So between the two days, all have experienced:

  • Communication and Presentation Skills
  • Group Managment
  • Self-Awareness and Identity

Lunch followed the workshops, and then rec time.

Now that the delegates have three workshops behind them, it was time for them to put their new leadership skills to work already. In a program component we call “MIX,” they’re presented with simulated “real world” projects (such as “Develop a new cartoon. Create the characters, the plot and then plan your release date”) that test their group development skills.

The rest of the day was spent working in their committees, playing games in their group rooms, and working with their Checkpoint staffer. Tonight’s activity – the first dance of the week! We also set up a room with board games for those who weren’t interested in shaking a leg.

Tomorrow starts a new round of workshops, so stay tuned!
